A retired professional wrestler living in Pitt County offered some celebrity time Wednesday night to help Children's Miracle Network.

Ivan "The Terrible" Koloff also known as the Russian Bear during his WWWF days stopped in at Mayflower restaurant in Washington to sign autographs for a small fee. All the money goes to CMN. The born again christian wrestler says the Children's Miracle Network is his favorite organization to work with.

"I've toured a couple of facilities and I really was impressed with the work that they do. From like seeing little babies from like a pound or less than a pound. The miracle of them from going so fragile and going healthy," said Koloff.

Koloff says he has been involved with CMN for about 20 years and he is excited to be part of it.
